Voted the Best of West Hawaii since 2000 , the Island Breeze Lu'au and is located on the shores of Kamakahonu Bay and the historic grounds of the Courtyard Marriott King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel. An evening filled with delicious food and authentic Island entertainment. Highlights include the re-enactment of the arrival of Kamehameha I aboard an outrigger canoe, the unearthing of the imu (underground oven), preliminary arts and crafts where you have a chance to meet the performers, a 22-dish buffet, an open bar and the finale of the Siva Afi - spectacular Samoan Fireknife dance.

You need to arrive early and is better if you pay for valet parking in the hotel so when you'll leave you are out first! They have plenty food for all the people, decent food, open bar and the show is interesting but sometimes boring!...More

Amazing time with the family, started off with an amazing greeting by Uncle Peni and the Lei Greeter Staff. Followed by a wonderful opening session with games and entertainment. The food was wonderful and Krista at the bar was the best bar tender.
